Wedgwood ceramics is celebrating 250 years. The company was founded by Josiah Wedgwood in 1759. There is a wonderful new book available titled "At Home With Wedgwood: The Art Of The Table". I really like the Jasper ware cups and saucers on the front cover.For readers of Bliss Victoria magazine, there is an excellent feature on Wedgwood with beautiful photos and an interesting time line of the company. For further research check out the terrific information on Wedgwood in the Autumn 2007 issue of Tea A Magazine.
I've really enjoyed my eight place setting of Queen's Ware in the Edme pattern. I'm missing several serving pieces and find that this discontinued pattern is quite hard to find.
This appears to be a much earlier version of the Edme pattern.
I really enjoy the shape of this cup and saucer with its pedestal base.
There have also been some lovely Wedgwood Christmas ornaments over the years. My top wish list item is a miniature Jasper cup and saucer ornament to put on my tea tree.
